maytag gas stove m#mgrh752bdb oven will not light but gas comes on ,replaced the ignighter
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So the spark module is only for the cooktop burners. You either have a bad igniter (which I know you replaced), the igniter isn't mounted properly, or the oven gas safety valve is not working properly and the gas isn't flowing properly. If you have an amp clamp, test the current drawer of the igniter wire (one of the two going to the igniter) and it should be over 3.2 amps. If it's not drawing enough, then replace the igniter. Now if it is drawing 3.2 amps, you need to make sure that you mounted the igniter properly and it's about 1/4" or so away from the side of the burner with the holes where the gas comes out so that the gas goes straight to the igniter. If everything checks good, then you need to replace the oven gas safety valve.

if the gas safety valve is bad will the oven still release gas during ignition

Yes. It all depends on how it fails. But if it's not giving the proper gas flow and it's just cracking open, some gas will come out but not enough to ignite in a timely manner.
